I need help with painting ceramics!

Posted by jennifermarie (My Page) on

I bought a plain white ceramic dog bowl and painted it with acrylic paint. It looks great, but now I see that it chips easy and I am sure that it shouldn't come into contact with water. Does anyone know of a kind of seal that I could add to the bowl? Thanks!

Hi, If you want to use this bowl the best thing to do is fire the bowl to remove the acrylics as best you can.
Then repaint with food safe glazes.
This will make your bowl water and food safe.
I know this is not what you wanted to see, but it is the best I know of.
hope this helps
